Help. During our removal of the battery, the red and black wires that run along the long edge of the battery pulled free of their plug. Now we can't get them reattached. Not sure about polarity either.

Where can you get a replacement battery

Easy peasy! The hardest thing was getting the back cover off (and back on). Our local electronic repair store refused to open the case for me (they’ll never get any business from me), so I asked my dentist to do it, and he did (and loved it). I can’t remember where I ordered the battery from; I just put the model number in a search engine and got several hits. The one I bought was new, cheap ($14), came in two days, and had all the tools with it! Thanks, ifixit; I’ll get a few more years out of this older one, which I use for crosswords puzzles and solitaire; you know, stuff you do in the waiting room. btw, I’m a 78-year-old woman.
